Claude Lorrain--the painter as draftsman : drawings from the British Museum by Richard Rand( Book )

15 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The great French artist Claude Lorrain (1600-1682) - for whom drawing was an integral part of the artistic process - spent most of his career in Italy, where he documented the beauty of the landscape and the splendor of classical ruins. This richly illustrated book examines the wide-ranging role the medium played throughout Claude's career. The book presents some of Claude's most remarkable drawings, representing all aspects of his style and subject matter - from informal outdoor sketches of trees, rivers, and ruins to formal presentation drawings and elaborate compositional designs for paintings, many of which have never before been reproduced in color. A detailed and scholarly essay places them within the social and cultural contexts of their time and includes comparative illustrations of paintings and etchings to situate them within the artist's oeuvre. A selection of works from the Liber Veritatis (Book of Truth), a portfolio of highly finished drawings that the artist created to document his own painted compositions, is also included

Prints for books : book illustration in France, 1760-1800 by Antony Griffiths( Book )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second half of the eighteenth century in France was one of the great ages of book illustration, which saw the meeting of top-quality engraving, fine printing and high bibliophily. The chapters of this book explore the interrelationship of these elements. The vogue began with a public demand that new poems, plays and novels should be illustrated with high-quality prints, and authors had to respond. The profits to be made tempted engravers, draughtsmen and a new breed of art entrepreneur to undertake projects of their own. In the 1780s fashion shifted to a passionate interest in book collecting and fine printing, and how the business responded to the new situation, and to the effects of the Revolution in the 1790s, is explored in this new book."
